Legal Recourse For Victims of Restaurant Shootings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with victims and their families who have been injured or killed in restaurant shootings. Mr. Kent has shared his knowledge on the legal options open to these victims and their families.
“Basically, commercial property owners legally have to protect their patrons and employees from any preventable dangers. Providing adequate security is the way property owners can fulfill this legal duty. Adequate security may include installing video surveillance and hiring security guards. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security on their premises, and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then he or she may be held liable for the crime,” says Mr. Kent.
“In order for a violent crime victim to have a grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner, the crime must be deemed reasonably foreseeable in addition to showing inadequate security. For instance, if a shooting occurs at a restaurant with a previous history of violent crime, yet no security improvments were put in place, then the shooting may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Therefore, a violent crime victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime occurred due to inadequate security, and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable,” explains Mr. Kent.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a restaurant shooting, you can learn more about the legal options available to you by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
